Greetings! It's Saturday, and the Pink Team's turn over at Eclectic Ellapu for a new challenge. This time, we are asked to create a project around summer and sunshine.I chose to work with this beautiful set of images from Crafty Individuals. As soon as I saw this set, I was drawn to it. I love the beach, and the young ladies just embody that free spirit you have for a day at the beach.
I began by smooshing Bundled Sage, Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint and Burnished Brass Distress Paints on my Craft Pad and spritzing with water. I dragged my card stock through it and spritzed more water until I was satisfied with the marbling. The edges were distressed and torn and the then mounted to a blue mat and the card base. The images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink and adhered to Crunchy Wax Paper by Paper Artsy using Kraft Photo Corners. I lightly water colored the images with Distress Markers. I decided to add the white ribbon along the bottom as the stars added sparkle and reminded me a bit of star fish. I added some cheese cloth to the card front, bits of burlap string and some metal sea charms. Can you smell the salt air?! I sure hope you will check out the rest of the Design Teams projects and then share your own with us. I am also submitting this card to the current Sea, Sun and Beach challenge at Crafty Individuals. Thanks so much for stopping by. Best, Yvonne
